Lost Audio Replaced By Numbers

Please help!

My friend and I are using audacity to record stories for our our company. In two of the recordings, parts of the audio have been deleted or are missing and below them in a separate box, in their place are numbers from 1- 10,000 depending on how far into the recording it is. Is there a way we can retrieve the missing audio, and what are these numbers for?

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!!


Are you using Audacity 2.2.2? Are those number in a label track? If so, what is the name of that label track?

This could be dropout detection.
